paired-pulse facilitation / auditory tract

I'm trying to find information on the role of paired-pulse
facilitation (PPF) in auditory processing.  I've found one paper* that
discusses PPF in the auditory nerve, but I am also interested in
studies that characterize any PPF in the dorsal cochlear nucleus,
medial geniculate body or auditory cortex.

I would also appreciate any papers that speculate on the computational
effect/purpose of PPF in the brain.

Best Wishes,
